RE: [Histonet] toenails

From:"Marshall Terry Dr, Consultant Histopathologist"

I suspect the success of procedures like soaking in Nair, Comfort, Mollifex, and even acid (I have given up trying to explain the illogic of this) is due to the one thing they have in common - soaking, i.e. water.
My experience is that what I have called success, is limited in the extreme.

Warm soapy water does the trick.

I am interested in finding out how other Histology labs deal with
toenails.  We get them and the pathologist wants them processed and
stained for fungus.  We have tried decal and that doesn't work very
well.  We have also tried Nair to soften them, but again that doesn't
work real well either.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
